Abraham Campaign: Poll Shows Her in Lead
Former District Attorney Lynne Abraham leads the still-nascent Philly mayoral race — at least, she does according to a poll commissioned by her campaign.
That poll shows Abraham trailing undecided, which is how 36 percent of the 600 voters surveyed cast themselves.
Against flesh-and-blood opponents, Abraham fared better. Asked who they would vote for if “the race were held today,” 31 percent chose Abraham, 12 percent City Council President Darrell L. Clarke, 9 percent state Sen. Anthony H. Williams, 5 percent T. Milton Street, 3 percent Nelson Diaz, 2 percent each for Terry Gillen and Ken Trujillo.
Of those, only Abraham, Williams, Gillen and Trujillo have announced their candidacies.
The poll was done by Washington-based Mellman Group, which has won the “Pollster of the Year” award three times from the American Association of Political Consultants.
